HI all,
I have a 1.25 Zetec on a 61 plate (Sept 2011 build date).
Without pulling the car apart for wasted time, should mine take the ESP switch?

As per Etis, the car has ''With IVD/Traction Control/ABS'' but also lists ''Less Anti-Spin Traction System''

I am looking at hopefully fitting
1514081 ESP switch + 2 "blinds" ?

However I am not attempting to remove the trim until the weather warms up (do not want to crack any trim!!)
Thanks TB

Fitted my modified switch in November but I have a 2010 car. Didn't get stuck in the snow but then I took the wimpish way out and walked into work leaving the car in the garage.

Look at it as a £35 gamble... I doubt they will have changed the car a lot unless it's a facelift model so it will probalby work. if not you may be able to sell it on on here.

I got the switch today, and in it went straightaway, true 'Plug & Play' ..........

This is the hole with the card holder removed, the plug/cable assembly is fastened to the centre console behind the silver trim. There are links in this thread to further info but to get to the cable the steps are ....

  • Pull up gear surround (for access to bottom of silver trim)
  • Prise off silver trim, there are 2 metal clips at the bottom, I found a very small screwdriver an easy method to release them, then gently manupulate the centre trim to release the rest of the plastic clips
  • Prise out the connector that is located on the car main body
  • Remove the card holder
I then reassembled it all whilst awaiting the delivery of the switch

Switch arrived so I connected it up, and tested it before placing it in the panel .......... just in case!!! Switch selected ESP off light 'on', ESP symbol in instrument cluster 'on' and yep you guessed it when selected again switch light off cluster light off

Once all was as expected fitted the switch in its hole. All in all a top fix (well we'll see in the snow ) so thanks to people on this board and to those on the German one for all the info they posted
